RIO East Church is a church associated with the RIO Network in East Tennessee. RIO is an acronym that stands for Restoration International Outreach. Currently, RIO has several churches spread over East TN, as well as numerous church-plants around the globe. RIO has a passion for world-missions, as well as taking the gospel to our own neighborhoods.


Our church at East is a knit body of believers who come together in sincere worship to lift the name of Jesus higher each day. We are built upon four pillars: the word of God, sincere worship, serving others, and seeing souls being added to the Kingdom of God.


Our church is underneath the Church of God denomination based out of Cleveland, TN. To find out more about our doctrinal teachings and beliefs read our Statement of Faith.

We are a close-knit, family-oriented church that is passionate about seeing our community transformed by the power of the Holy Ghost and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Here, the truth is taught and the Spirit has full liberty.

We welcome ANYONE and EVERYONE to encounter God with us. It's our belief that no person should ever be excluded from meeting Jesus or from being loved by His people. Regardless of what background you come from, or what you may have done or experienced in your life - we invite you to give church a chance. It takes each of us to help build the Kingdom. We'll try our best to be the avenue to Christ that you need. 

Welcome to Church.
We have a seat for you!
